The planned mass rally to shut down the whole of Bangkok will begin on Jan 13 at 9am, anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban said on Wednesday night. 

Mr Suthep made the announcement in a speech delivered to protesters at Democracy Monument.

The People's Democratic Reform Committee will hold demonstrations across Bangkok on Jan 5-8 to invite people to join its protest movement to demand the resignation of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and to help achieve its aim of “reform-before-election”.
